What is coaching?
Like lots of parents you’re probably struggling with lots of questions and worries.
- Will my kids be okay?
- What do I say?
- Is this normal?
- How will I get through this?
Questions you desperately want answered yet you don’t know where to turn.
The good news is…You don’t have to go it alone.
How can I help you?
And that’s where I come in.
Coaching is a partnership between me and you.
It’s a chance to put the oxygen mask on yourself so you can gain the support, insight and feedback you need. Coaching helps you re-connect to your best self so you can be the parent your kids need during this tough time.
While we may dig deep, unlike therapy, we won’t spend time taking apart the past. Instead we’ll focus on what lies ahead, how to get life back on track and create a new normal for your and your kids.
I can help you:
- Stay connected to how this feels for your kids.
- Learn how to handle difficult divorce problems ( from how to tell your kids to what do when your Ex won’t let up)
- Tap into the things you do well and use those strengths to overcome current challenges.
- Re-establish family life for you and your children.
How does coaching work?
We meet by phone. Where we start is up to you.
While every situation is different, usually parents I work with fall into two categories. Those who want to invest in longer-term change ( 3 to 6 months) and those who want focused support (usually not more than a session or two).
Once you decide to work with me, we schedule a mutually convenient time to meet by phone. During the first phone call we’ll spend some time discussing what you want and what you can expect from me. Together we will identify roadblocks and develop strategies for dealing with those issues. The next step involves taking action. Usually you leave the call with ideas you can put into practice as soon as you hang up the phone.
While my professional background is diverse, coaching sessions are not designed to deal with therapeutic issues. I also don’t provide legal advice or testify. Getting the right kind of help is important. If you have additional needs or if I feel another coach or professional would be a better fit for you, I won’t hesitate to recommend other possible options.
Fees are $150 USD per 50-60 minute session. One time coaching or joint co-parenting sessions are $200 USD for the first 50 minutes. Additional time is billed in 15 minute increments.
Between sessions, if you hit a bump in the road and need to touch base with me I do offer “light support” (follow up by either email or a brief telephone call) at no additional charge.
*For clients outside of the US, all sessions will be charged in US dollars and converted to the appropriate exchange rate.
